Paperwork and Veterinary Requirements

  • It’s best to have 0x Cargo or an equally qualified IPATA agent help guide and plan your pet’s pre-move preparations. For now, the following information serves as a guide in order to prepare your pet to enter Malaysia.


A mandatory post-entry quarantine duration of 7 days is required at either the quarantine facility near KUL or PEN airport.

Health/Veterinary Requirements


Must be administered before any other veterinary procedures.

  • Dogs and cats must be identifiable by microchip. There are no exceptions to this rule.

  • The microchip should be ISO compliant and 15 digits long.If your pet does not have an ISO compliant chip, your pet will have to travel with a microchip reader attached to the crate. Alternatively, your vet can implant a new ISO compliant chip in addition to the existing non-ISO compatible chip.
    After implanting the chip, your pet will have to be revaccinated in order for new vaccinations to be valid.


Rabies vaccinations within 12 months from export.

  • Dogs: Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parainfluenza and Parvovirus (DHLPP) and Bordetella (recommended)

  • Cats: Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis, Calicivirus and Panleukopenia (FVRCP)

  • Both: Rabies vaccinations

Paperwork Requirements

Import Permit

  • We recommend having 0x Cargo LLC arrange the import permit’s quarantine booking and import permit application for you.

Health Examination for Health Certificate

Must be conducted within 7 days of departure (contrary to what USDA says)

  • At this point in your pet’s move, one of our pet shipping specialists will pre-complete the correct health certificate and email it to you veterinarian for signature at the physical appointment. We provide all documents and are available to answer any questions and troubleshoot issues that may arise.

USDA Endorsement

Must be completed before departure

  • After your pet has been examined by your veterinarian and the health certificate has been completed and signed, the health certificate must be submitted to the USDA office to be endorsed. 0x Cargo will coordinate this process with your doctor.

  • If a military veterinarian completes your pet’s health certificate, the USDA endorsement is not needed. A military veterinarian is a Veterinary Corps Officer or civilian GS-0701 series government veterinarian employed by the U.S Army Veterinary Service.

The requirements above for moving your pet to Malaysia can also be found on USDA’s website and the Malaysia’s Department of Veterinary Services’s resource page.

Airport Information

Kuala Lumpur International Airport is one of two main international airports in Malaysia for pets to arrive.
